Sheffield United have been told to enjoy a loanee “while they can” after another impressive display in their 3-1 win over Hull City at the weekend.

Speaking of Hull, their goalscorer from the defeat is attracting interest from the Premier League and the Tigers could have a fight on their hands to keep a hold of him.

Reading midfielder John Swift is another player drawing interest from both the Championship and the Premiership and yet another top flight club have reportedly entered the race to sign the 26-year old.

Nottingham Forest are yet to appoint a successor to Chris Hughton but one of the front runners is already planning a transfer swoop from division rival Swansea City should he land the job at the City Ground.

Cardiff City could be prepared to let a Welsh international striker leave the club on-loan in January while Middlesbrough and QPR have both been handed updates on their current injury concerns.

A former Barnsley loanee is reportedly the target of Crystal Palace, but the Eagles could have to pony up as much as £18million for the player, while former Blackburn Rovers man Phil Jones has provided an update on his Manchester United future amid interest from another of English clubs including Fulham.
